Private screening cements our special relationship with US Embassy

After hosting Deputy Chief of Mission of the US Embassy Lew Lukens last year, we were delighted to further cement our special relationship with the embassy by attending an invitation only screening of the inspirational movie, Hidden Figures.

Telling the story of a team of black female mathematicians who served vital roles at NASA during the early years of the US Space programme, a delegation of sixth form students and staff had a fantastic time at the event, hobnobbing with embassy staff and special guests, including the Ambassador himself. 

After watching the movie, which received a standing ovation at the end, students then participated in a Q&A session with an esteemed panel including acclaimed astrophysicist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock. 

We are looking forward to forging further links with the embassy and perhaps an invitation to their brand new digs in South London!
